Ahmadinejad’s famous jacket sells for 54 million tomans at auction

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s famous jacket has sold for 54 million tomans at auction, Iran’s semi-official news agency Mehr reported.

A CBS News correspondent on Iran asked Ahmadinejad for his jacket at a news conference last year.

According to the Iranian website, the Iranian President’s famous jacket, which is considered as a symbol of simple lifestyle, had earlier been sold at auction for 54 million tomans.

In 2011, a 1977 Peugeot sedan belonging to Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was sold for 2.5 billion tomans ($2.5 million) in a charity auction.
